Name this evergreen shrub?

Does anyone know the name of these evergreen shrubs and if they respond well to hard pruning? They came with the house and while I’m not a huge fan of them, they’re nice winter interest and hide the foundation. I’ve previously just hand pruned the overgrowth but I’d like to take a hedge trimmer to them and shape them/shorten them. Will they fill in quickly if I shear them a few inches? They seem to need trimmed a couple times a year or else I end up with tall random branches. I’d like to make them a bit smaller. They’re crowding my hostas and hydrangeas.
